CEC Teams With Leading Retailer and Research Scientist to Discuss Positive Impact of Restorative Justice Programs at Upcoming NRF LP Conference and Expo

Learn How Restorative Justice Education Programs Increase the Efficiencies of Processing Offenders, Reduce Recidivism Rates, and Ultimately Help to Decrease Shrink

OREM, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Corrective Education Company (CEC), a leading provider of Restorative Justice Education Programs, will join one of the nation's leading retailers and a research scientist from the University of Florida and director of the Loss Prevention Research Council in a session titled "Restorative Justice - The Impact on Retail Efficiency, Recidivism & Shrink" at the National Retail Federation Loss Prevention Conference & Expo. The session will take place on June 11, 2014 from 3:45 pm to 4:45 pm in rooms 315-316 at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center.

Petty crimes are one of the biggest burdens on society as a whole. Their affects are not only felt by the retailer with lost time and profits, but can cost the average consumer thousands of dollars in higher prices, overload the criminal justice system and have negative long-term consequences for the offender who often times commits the crime based on a spur of the moment bad decision.

"The cost of prosecuting petty theft offenders through the traditional collective justice approach of the criminal justice system continues to rise," said Darrell Huntsman, CEO and Founder of CEC. "This session will provide real-life case studies on how a Restorative Justice Educational program can combine media rich educational programs with the latest in mobile technology to re-invent how these crimes are handled going forward."

Attendees of the session will also learn how Restorative Justice Educational programs are driving efficiencies while lowering costs. In addition, they will learn how these programs are bridging significant communications and information gaps between retailers, law enforcement and the courts, uniting them around a common cause that benefits all.

From a research perspective, studies have found that a Restorative Justice Education program substantially reduces repeat offending for some offenders and provides victims and offenders with more satisfaction with the justice they receive than though more traditional methods.

Restorative Justice Education programs can change how petty crimes are handled, providing significant benefits for retail LP operations.

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...

In this session, we will use customer use cases...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
